11:20pm
going to be watching very closely. it's not going to be a monster. i want to warn you about that right now. a cold start, rather breezy. 32, 39 degrees. next couple of days, highs only in the low 50s. 53 on sunday after we move the clocks back one hour: elections coming in at a possible 50 degrees. i think we will see something out of it. what? it's just a little too far away to tell exactly what. >> make the most of that extra hour we get this weekend, too. >> it's going to feel nice. >> we have sports coming up next. terps playing some ball. >> and mike

11:25pm
it's a marriage proposal. perhaps the duke came would have been my choice, just saying. but it looks like she says yes. she's very happy. here's seth allen coming up with one of his five steals. quick hands for the freshman and going toast to toast. 16 points, terps down one at the break. up six, more from the "d." nick faust causes the turnover. allen hits the deck, gets it back to faust who will spot up and he is feeling it. the sophomore with 13 points, the game, maryland wins 73-61. they will open up the season in one week against those defending national champions. >> the red skins all seem to echo the same sentiment leading in the panther's game this weekend. the skins are much better than their three and five record. before you just dismiss that as a cliche, keep in mind that nobody was saying that loost year when, yes, they were three and five. but a better-than-expected start
11:26pm
makes up for the rookie a lot. >> if you told me that at the mid point of the season, robert would be the most successful quarterback in the nfl, three yards per play, i'd let literally say you were crazy. so for a guy to be able to do th that, it's a bunch of guys working together. it's just not him. and robert would also say stats don't mean anything until you start playing football games. i'm very proud of what he has done. and i believe he'll still get better. >> what pumps you up like high school football. loudon county with the district title on the line. looking for more, tracy mcsorely finds cam serna.

11:30pm
and our heroes are coming home. we're not there yet, but we've made real progress and the... last thing we should do is turn back now. here's my plan for the next four years: making education and training a national priority; building on our manufacturing boom; boosting american-made energy; reducing the deficits responsibly by cutting where... we can, and asking the wealthy to pay a little more. and ending the war in afghanistan, so we can... do some nation-building here at home. that's the right path. so read my plan, compare it to governor romney's... and decide which is better for you. it's an honor to be your president... and i'm asking for your vote... so together, we can keep moving america forward. i'm barack obama and i approve this message.
